Vinoo Varghese Principal Attorney

The son of a nurse and cab driver, Vinoo Varghese got into a lot of fights growing up in Queens, so he learned martial arts to successfully defend himself and others from bullies.

As one of the nation’s top white-collar and criminal defense attorneys, former prosecutor Vinoo Varghese takes on trials and appeals other lawyers won’t – and wins. Yet, he prides himself on the fact that he has repeatedly convinced prosecutors to end cases against his clients without charges or gaining public attention, allowing those he defends to resume their lives.

Varghese is a visiting faculty member at Harvard Law School’s Trial Advocacy Workshop. He is a member of the Forbes Business Council and the Entrepreneurs Organization. Varghese has been included on The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 list for eight consecutive years. He has been named a Super Lawyer for the past seven years and Martindale-Hubbell has rated him AV Preeminent for five straight years. Earlier in Varghese’s career, the New York Law Journal recognized him as a Rising Star.

The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the New York Law Journal, and Law360 have quoted Varghese multiple times for his vigorous advocacy of clients. In addition, multiple newspapers have published his op-eds highlighting prosecutorial quandaries in the cases of O.J. Simpson, George Floyd, and the Central Park Karen. In an op-ed published on March 21, 2020, Varghese challenged then-Governor Cuomo’s failure to include criminal defense attorneys as essential workers. The next day criminal defense lawyers were deemed “essential.”

Known as one of the nation’s foremost white-collar and criminal legal experts, Varghese is a regular guest commentator on cable networks ranging from FOX to CNN, and international networks from BBC to Sky News Arabia. His expert status led Vanity Fair to have him fact-check Hollywood scenes from The Wolf of Wall Street to Billions.

Varghese graduated from Brooklyn Law School, New York University, and Chaminade High School. In 2000, Varghese began his career as a prosecutor and in 2006, he founded Varghese & Associates, P.C., a white-collar and criminal defense firm dedicated to helping clients across
America resume their lives.
